Alright guys, here's the problem...
...I'm from Ventura (CA) and was an avid long-boarder back home. Problem is, you go where the money is, right? I now live in Utah, b/c the job supports my wife and son. BUT...there's no ocean.
Has ANYONE tried to surf on storm swells on lakes? I've heard that 30mph wind will generate 4'-5' swells on some of the more shallow lakes, which should really be fine on a longboard. Not much shape or energy, but it's better than sitting at home watching Blue Torch re-runs.
